Garfield Gives, Gets New Movie Role //
Andrew Garfield, of “Spiderman” and “The Social Network” fame, recently showed his support for a great cause while attending the 16th Annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in New York City. He appeared with girlfriend and co-host of the event Emma Stone, and the couple walked hand-in-hand with their gold retriever, Ren.
The event, which garnered the participation of more than 20,000, raises funds for women’s cancer research, counseling and outreach; since its creation in 1994, the run has distributed over $68 million.
And speaking of worthy causes, Garfield also became the Worldwide Orphans Foundation’s Ambassador of Sport in 2012. Meanwhile, on the movie front, he just landed a role in Martin Scorsese’s long-in-talks project, “Silence” – guess one could call it a case of good karma that the generous celeb will star in this adaptation of Japanese author Shusaku Endo’s novel, green-lighted for June 2014.
Garfield was born to a British mother and an American father – both Jewish – in Los Angeles. He grew up with his parents in Britain, where he began his acting career.
More Levine on Your Screen
Thought of by many as the biggest draw of NBC’s singing competition “The Voice,” Adam Levine might finally be expanding upon his TV stardom. The singer and his longtime manager Jordan Feldstein (brother of Jonah Hill) have signed a development deal with NBC, for which he pair will be working on scripted, original programming for the network.
And besides his singing competition judgeship and potentially larger role in television, the Maroon 5 frontman has also released his own fragrance line. Yes, it seems inevitable that stars enter this field, but Levine insists his men and women’s scents bring something artful to the perfume game.
Another L.A. baby, Levine was raised in the state with parents Fred and Patsy. Both Levine’s father and maternal grandfather were Jewish, and the singer identifies strongly with his religion.
Fun fact, though: He declined a bar mitzvah as a child due to his belief that modern parties place an overemphasis on cash. Well, he’s certainly got some to spare now!
